A dual compound front tire is coupled with Cap&Base layout rears: a dual compound for low to medium displacement motorcycles and a tri-compound for Superbike and Hypernaked machines.
The hard layer due to the high content of Silica and the low Tg delivers outstanding grip in cold and wet conditions. The side softer layer (accessed when in lean angles over 35°) offers excellent grip and delivers a brilliant contact feeling. Combined this gives the rider the option to adjust the trajectory while cornering or to delay braking ahead of entering into lean.

The full silica dual compound rear offers quick warm up, significant grip level regardless of lean angle (also in wet conditions) and riding smoothness. In relation with the dimension of the tire, and therefore of the contact patch, a dual compound with less compound discontinuity ensures the best stress distribution and therefore delivers riding feeling and wear uniformity.
Tri-compound rear tires, from 190/55 ZR 17 above
Introducing an endurance-racing compound, the 5-zone layout moves the trade-off on high lean angles from wet grip to thrust boost to cope with the extreme cornering speed and the astonishing engine outputs of modern performance motorcycles. The soft full silica mid rubber strip ensures performance whilst delivering a safe sporty ride – across all weather conditions.
